Do I have enough power output?

I am slowly building up my computer and was wondering what type of PSU I should be getting.

My current build is this : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/fPKzqs

I do plan to overclock a bit although not right away and was wondering if maybe switching to 80+ platinum and a higher output is required or if I would be fine as is.

you're fine with what you've got in there. though the Corsair RMx 1000 is cheaper, performs the same and is much quieter. I'd also change the ram to the 16GB (2x8GB) G.Skill Trident Z kit. why are you buying such an expensive motherboard?

That's fine for your build. you can go a little higher if you want without seeing any negative effects, but you don't need to. same for the efficiency... you CAN go higher, but you don't need to.
